Commonly called a high roof for obvious reasons, this classic VW bus was originally converted by Adventure Campers in California. Unlike many other conversions, the Adventurewagen was based on the Deluxe model which gives it a unique, upscale appearance thanks to two tone paint, aluminum accent trim, full headliner, vinyl interior panels etc. From the lack of rust, we can assume it remained in California for many years before migrating to the midwest in the late 90's where it eventually ended up in storage for 20 years. We purchased it as an incomplete restoration and have spent the last year creating the bus it is today. Our approach was to preserve what we could, replace and restore as needed and reimagine the bits that were missing. Starting with the basics, this VW has a clear, correct NC title in our name. We believe the mileage is accurate. We have performed extensive service in preparation for sale. The bus is clean and in proper working order. It is exempt from odometer reporting here in NC and exempt from inspection, but everything works, so an inspection in another state would be no problem. This VW is up to date on maintenance, has very low mileage on a rebuilt engine, has new correct tires and is ready to enjoy. We can provide a detailed list of mechanical items replaced and work performed. The exterior has been completely repainted close to it's original colors Pastel White over Niagra Blue. The windshield, body seals, glass seals and door seals have all been replaced. The result is a tight, solid, good looking bus. Having arrived without the original camping interior (which was heavy, bulky and ugly anyway) we had the opportunity to come up with our own design. We opted for a clean, simple, bright and open look with a few nice touches. This bus would have originally had an all black vinyl interior, so we went with a whole new set of panels, an original back seat with Z bed conversion for camping, all three seats reupholstered, new headliner, cargo mat, rear deck cover and cushion. We have added a custom wine cooler to address a hole left in the passenger bulkhead where the stove once was. On the opposite side is a simple folding table with cup holder, similar to the removable tray on the dash. The major focus was in the high roof which is trimmed out more than it would have been. Here we mixed Birch, headliner fabric and aluminum, added shelves and an extra 12V outlet. The storage cabinets are lit and lined with Birch and Cedar so that clothing and bedding can be left in them. The windows and vent have been serviced and have new screens. With these open the bus is surprisingly cool inside. Other items added to the bus include an 8' folding awning, 110V electrical system and an installed battery charger. As you can imagine with a stock 1600cc engine, this bus is not fast, but it's definitely fun to drive in it's own way, and certainly fun to be around. It's a nice example in excellent condition, but not too perfect to drive. We imagine it will draw a crowd at shows, campouts and events. We hope whoever buys it will actually use and enjoy it. We know that serious buyers will have questions. We will gladly answer them and provide any additional information about the condition, what's correct, what's incorrect, service performed, the upgrades, Adventure campers, busses in general. We just wanted get enough in this listing to get the conversation going without overloading the details. 118 photos are on our website www.myautofocus.com Our approach is to offer desirable, quality vehicles that are clean, up to date and ready to drive.
